Roselynn Verwoord- Bio

As an educator, facilitator, and curriculum developer, I have worked in a variety of formal and informal educational settings both locally and internationally. As an educator, I bring a commitment to constructivism and humanism in the classroom, which emphasize learners being actively involved in creating meaning knowledge and meaning. Presently, I work as a Curriculum Consultant at the at the Centre for Teaching Learning and Technology at the University of British Columbia (UBC) where I support departments and units to develop curriculum and related courses and materials. I also teach in the Provincial Instructor Diploma Program at Vancouver Community College. My formal education includes a Bachelor of Education in Elementary Curriculum as well as a Master of Arts in Society, Culture, and Politics in Education. I am currently completing a PhD in Educational Studies from UBC.

My research interests include teacher inquiry, arts-based educational research, student engagement, and the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). I am committed to education as a tool for social change and I strive to create spaces where research is about ‘re-searching’ both individually and collectively. Firmly believing in the importance of relationships and engaging in the community, I actively seek out opportunities to work in partnership with students and community members. As a researcher, I aim to create opportunities for research partners and participants to engage as equal voices in research and inquiry processes. My research inquiries are motivated by a desire to see a more equal and just world – a world where all voices are valued and at the table.

Since participating in the Adult Education program, I have incorporated many of the skills and concepts into my everyday work. I feel strongly that my involvement in the Adult Education program has enhanced my work, and has given me the critical thinking skills needed to develop new programming and further my career.
